Description

[Video description: A Black woman, Malikha, wearing a black shirt with white Nike wording and logo standing in front of blue lockers using the ASL ABC Story structure to describe hot summers in Jamaica.]

[Video translation: Wiping off the sweat from the heat, fanning myself. Drinking liquids and sweating buckets. Walking down a path and noticed some crabs. Quickly hurrying then falling and getting up. Eyes glanced over and there were people dancing and singing. Things were picked up, running to sea and it was so loud. Digging from the ground and tying things up then drinking it then leaving.]
